      This PC is working okay right now.

      I've had this PC for about 2 months now, and so far, it's still usable. There are only two things that make me nervous: the HDD and the GPU. I can hear the HDD very clearly, and I don't think I'm supposed to. But I haven't had any performance issues with it. No errors, and it hovers around 3-15 ms response time on idle. I've also been playing games on it, such as CODMWRemastered and World of Warships, with no issues. The GPU has a habit of becoming extremely hot to the touch, but I haven't been able to find any good software to measure its temperature, so all I can do is hope it's not going to fry. The main reason I'm concerned about the GPU is that sometimes when I turn the computer on, the Dell emblem appears, and Windows continues the boot process, but the PC stops sending a signal to my monitor. I don't think the monitor is the issue. But the only thing I've found that works is unplugging the cable connected to the PC and plugging it in again, and that seems to work temporarily. And then I don't have any problems for a couple of days. I'm using the HDMI output which is adapted to VGA. CODMWRemastered can be choppy sometimes on this PC. Although this GPU has GDDR5 memory, it only has 2 GB, which is not enough for most newer games. I wish the PC came with the 4 GB version. But World of Warships works great. Fortnite also works very well on this PC. I play it with 2nd highest settings. One thing to be aware of is that the PSU is only 460W, so if you want to upgrade the GPU, you're probably going to have to replace that, too. One other problem that I've been experiencing is random freezing. It's getting really annoying. The thing is that I'm not sure if it's due to the PC or Windows 10, but I'm guessing Windows 10 is behind the freezing, if not also the random absence of a signal when I turn it on, as the Dell emblem appears, so it's probably not the hardware. Outside of that, it's a great computer for just about anything. And if you want to run a VM on it, that'll work great, too. And for the price, I can't really complain.

      Excellent Performance, Terrible Reliability

      I do not recommend purchasing this particular machine, I'm not sure if the high level version of this one is any better, but I've already swapped mine out for the exact same model just in case the first one I purchased was faulty. Unfortunately, for some reason these machines are extremely buggy. Mine is prone to spontaneously freezing at random periods of low to moderate use. The USB ports also have an issue with the wireless adapters for mouse/keyboard that causes it to stop functioning completely, which requires me to remove them from the port and re-insert them every time. There is no reliability or consistency in how this machine runs, and as a result everything I work on is continuously backed up to Google Drive, One Drive, and an 8 TB external HD (Overkill, right? Still worth it to me.) Aside from the overwhelming bad issues, the speed and performance is actually really amazing. Bearing in mind that I use mine for work, programming, writing, etc... Now, why did I decide to keep it? Well, the price point was really great at the time and I have developed my own work arounds that prevent me from losing any data in the event of a failure. I also invested in a quality SSD, which mitigates the number and frequency of crashes and freezing I experience. I love Dell, but I will probably upgrade to a different model at some point.

      They NEED to pull these off the shelves

      Posted
      Dillon

      This is easily the worst computer I've ever owned, and I've been through many in my lifetime. During the first few weeks after it arrived, I would leave the computer on for awhile when I would leave the house. I would come back to the monitor in sleep mode, and I wasn't able to wake it up. It turns out, that the computer would actually just freeze randomly, and the monitor would go to sleep. Every SINGLE day this computer freezes multiple times, without fail. I contacted Dell Support, who did their normal troubleshooting for freezing computers and of course, that didn't help one bit. They told me to reinstall Windows and if that didn't work, to send it in for repair. I went for almost a year without a computer, and I spent over $500 for this one and now I have to go possibly another month without one because Dell/Best Buy can't pull an OBVIOUSLY faulty computer from the shelves? An absolute waste of money, and everyone experiencing the same problems that I am should be just as furious. If so many people are having the same problem, they should be able to figure out what the problem is and let us know when we contact support. I also asked for a refund, but they told me they would be unable to, which is also ridiculous. I can't even do work or play games comfortably because the computer could just freeze at any point. If you buy this computer, you are taking a HUGE risk and it just isn't worth it at this price point, so please don't even bother and go with something else.

        Hi Dillon,

        Thanks for your review. We're sorry to hear about the issues you've been having with freezing. We'd recommend the following steps to help with this issue in the future:

        1. Run a Computer Diagnostic. To determine if your computer is experiencing a hardware problem, run the Dell Preboot System Assessment (PSA) Diagnostics. For information on how to run Diagnostics, and to determine the issue, refer to Dell Knowledge Base Article: http://dell.to/2iaiujA.
        2. Check Safe Mode for Symptoms. To boot into safe mode, please follow the instructions below:
        a) Start the computer.
        b) Tap 'F8' on the keyboard immediately and every one second until the Dell logo screen disappears. From there you will see the Windows Advanced Options Menu on the screen. (If the Windows Advanced Options Menu does not appear, restart the system and try again.)
        c) Select Safe mode with Networking and press Enter.
        d) Log on as the administrator or as a user with administrative access.
        e) Open applications and test the computer in safe mode. If the symptoms exist in safe mode, please continue the troubleshooting steps in this article. If the symptoms do not exist in safe mode, the issue is likely related to a driver or software and you may wish to complete step 3 to see if you are able to resolve the lockups or freezing.
        3. Check for Malware. Malware (Virus, Spyware, etc.) can definitely cause a Windows system to lock up or appear to hang. To check for malware on your system and to ensure that your computer is up to date on security software, visit Dell Knowledge Base Article: http://dell.to/2wWP1zI.

        You can read the full article here - http://dell.to/2tW5m33.

        We hope this helps your computer run better for you.

        Best,

      Just an awful experience

      Read reviews before I purchased so that is why when my problems started I thought it was something I was doing wrong or an update was needed. Then about five days in my fan started sounding like a plane was going to land in my room. My screen started freezing and then eventually kept having to reboot 3 or 4 times a day. As of today I got a blue screen and it wouldn't even let me sign in. I purchased the computer February 6th and picked it up on the 8th. Took computer in on March 5th and did not even have the option to return this computer. Major purchase in my life and policy is that I only had 14 days to return. Called Dell and spoke to 4 different people on one call. They kept transferring me and telling me they were going to help and then would dump me on to the next person without even giving them any information and I had to tell the whole story over again and again. I was so upset over the whole experience. I am praying that Best Buy can fix it because with this major purchase I have no say in how this is going to be handled. I had 14 days and I blew it. It is all my fault. Oh and by the way since I purchased the computer three other people have gone out and left bad reviews in February having the same problem.

      Good for the price, but the fan is distracting

      I bought this to replace an older desktop that was showing signs of age and some hard drive instability. Setup was easy, access to the inside is easy to put in second hard drive (old hard drive from other computer to facilitate file transfer). Everything was going very well. The boot up time is a little slower that I expected from a brand new computer, but that is not a big deal. It runs smoothly once it boots up. It is used mostly for bookkeeping, MS Office, and email, though I do some occasional video editing. As I was setting up the computer and copying files, everything was nice and quiet. I almost didn't even hear the fan. However, I was doing some video processing this afternoon and the fan kicked into high gear (it is still going strong now). It is very noisy, especially in the small space where the box is sitting. Other than the noise of the fans, it seems to be a very nice system.

        Mike - We're sorry to hear that the fan noise on your new Dell Desktop is so loud and distracting. Here are a few tips we'd recommend:
        A: Cleaning the Vents
        1. Check the vents on the computer to see if they are covered with dust and not allowing heat and air to pass through.
        2. Turn off the system.
        3. Remove all power sources: Unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery, or unplug the desktop power Cord.
        4. Use a compressed air can to blow the dust out of the vents. Be sure to hold the can at an upright angle (near 90 degrees), and hold it 15-20 centimeters (6-8 inches) away from the vent.
        B: Update the BIOS: An out-of-date BIOS can cause loud fan noises by having an outdated temperature table for the system. Refer to update BIOS and follow the instructions to update the BIOS on your computer.

        Visit Dell Drivers and Downloads website and input your Service Tag to get updates for your computer.
        C: Diagnostics Check: You may also perform Full System Diagnostics or Dell Quicktest on your computer.

      Cheap for what you get.

      Plays games like Heroes of the Storm on Ultra with no problem. Even Final Fantasy 14 on max graphics runs pretty smooth, bear in mind these are multiplayer. Skyrim? HD Texture modded, the machine handles things at High settings around 30fps and has noticeable lag at Ultra. Also, update it! When you get it working, update EVERYTHING! Download Driver Booster and let it run idle to do its thing. I've had the fan run very loudly only to realize it was simply downloading an update I wasn't aware of. If the fan is running loudly, check to see if something is updating. If not, simply restarting will always fix it for me. Be sure to check power management as well. Once its running and updated, you can install what you'd like. Skype, Discord, Razor Cortex, OBS etcetc.

      Decent for the Price

      Ammy

      This PC is DECENT for the price point giving it at 512$. I've got it on sale for 480$ which wasn't bad, only problem with the PC? Is the CPU, the CPU is an AMD A10 Series 9700, which if you bundle, you won't be getting 1080p resolution gaming right outside the box. However this is upgradeable and would I recommend upgrading the CPU in this PC? Well if you want to game on current Triple A titles at Medium settings and 1080p and have no problem spending a few 100 dollars then go for the new Ryzen 3 2200G, the CPU used in this system as I've been seeing is mostly used for those All-in-One systems, which when paired with a dedicated GPU (RX 560) it won't give it a good kick as what a better CPU like the Ryzen or other AMD products would.

      Picked this computer up considering I could not build a PC with anything near what's included for the price. Got it home and first thing I did was add a 120gb ssd and install Windows 10 to it and set as boot drive. Then cleared the 1tb drive. I wanted it to be as OEM as possible. Dell has always made a good computer. But now it's even better. SSD upgrade and no bloat ware installed. Plays some basic games and outs to 3 monitors just fine. Worth the price I paid! And the Geeksquad warranty is always a plus over building one piece by piece.
